The increased brilliance of Diamond-II, combined with the proposed beamline upgrades, including a change of source and the use of broad bandwidth radiation, will boost scientific discovery by enabling dynamic experiments rather than static measurements, allowing statistically significant studies of large set of samples, and provide environments which best preserve the native state under investigation. The multi-scale and multi-modal capabilities permit complete studies at different levels of detail from the micron to the nano lengthscale.
The I13L upgrade will increase the beamline’s operation range (up to 38keV) and coherent flux (20-100x), integrate state-of-the-art imaging such as full-field microscopy, ptychography and Bragg-CDI as turnkey methods, providing cryo-environments and high-throughput capabilities. Zooming from micro-tomography into high-resolution imaging with 20nm resolution is one of the central aims of the beamline. Recording in the ms and µsec regime provides access to observing rapid processes in a native environment.
